Note that I had my safe fitted with an optional second lock upgrade, so I will attempt to review this safe based on its stock specifications for this particular item (that is, one key lock). However, note that my experience will necessarily be tainted by this distinction.

I will break up my review according to a few different categories:

Security: Whilst it's tough to rate things like security and build quality without having someone attempt to break into it (and, like insurance, it's something that you buy, hoping to never need), the safe has been tested to the appropriate Euro grade specification (in this case, Grade 2) to ensure that you'll get certified protection up to an appropriate level to what you're spending. The single key lock feels secure, but you can upgrade the safe to have an electronic or dial lock, or even two locks, if you desire. I believe that the safe plays host to an assortment of anti-attack features such as relockers and is of a thick, heavy design that will not be easy to cart out of a building, especially when properly anchored. To top it all off, the Chubb brand is well known and respected in the security world.Overall I'm very happy with the security of this safe relative to the money that I paid.

Build Quality: As above, the security of the construction will hopefully never be tested! The grade 2 is a very heavy safe - I believe that their grade 3 model is a little lighter - and you get a satisfying *thunk* when rotating the handle and swinging the door open. The safe feels like it will last for a long time and stand up to many open/close cycles, although obviously that's difficult to tell after only 3 months. Despite the thickness of the safe walls, it's surprisingly spacious inside and I haven't had any problems storing everything I need in it.

Ease of Use:

The key lock is very simple to operate, as is the handle. Once you've opened and closed it 2-3 times it'll feel like second nature. Note that if you upgrade to a mechanical or digital lock, or add two locks, the difficulty curve will spike upwards a little - the exact extend of such being dependent on your specific upgrade path and personal technical know-how. Since this is a review of the "stock" safe I'll just leave it at that. Very simple to use.

Value for Money:

It's not a cheap safe, but then is a positive bargain compared with, say, the Eurograde 6 safes. In the stock locking configuration I'd say that this is a very good VfM safe for all you're getting for the money - again, it's hard to truly judge since until a safe is attacked, you're really rating a glorified cupboard - but it's nice to know that it's always there, protecting your stuff - which for business purposes may be insurance purposes may be mandatory! Note that depending on your upgrade option the cost of the safe can be significantly more and thus the VfM will dip slightly - depending on how much you value the contents within!

As always, I found shopping with to be top-notch - I had some lengthy questions that needed discussing and my customer service contact was more than capable of helping me. Safe's website UX is very friendly and easy-to-use, and helped me quickly compare several like models to find the best one suitable for my task. Safe's prices are very competitive and they do offer a price matching service if you find a better price elsewhere. Overall I'm very happy with the experience!

Delivery and Installation:

I have absolutely no qualms with the delivery company, who were professional, friendly and knowledgeable. The team arrived within the specified time window and, using the appropriate equipment, installed the safe carefully without damaging any furniture or walls/doors etc. The safe was then tested before they went on their way, leaving behind no mess. A+ service there!


Overall, I'm very happy with Safe (the website) and Safe (the item that I bought!) and, pursuant to your own needs, I highly recommend this safe!
